VerifiedVoting.org lobbies on voter-verified paper ballots

According to KioskMarketplace:

"A coalition of organizations and more than 200 citizen lobbyists are lobbying the U.S. Congress in support of legislation requiring voter-verified paper ballots, according to a news release.

"VerifiedVoting.org supports H.R.550, the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act, and S.330, the Voting Integrity and Verification Act, which would require that voting systems used in federal elections produce a voter-verified paper ballot that voters can inspect before casting their votes."

Not being an electronic voting fan (by any stretch, as you can see from articles like E-Voting Still Not Ready for Prime-Time and Miami-Dade loses touchscreen voting information), I find this very interesting, and personally I think it's great that others have identified the lack of a paper trail for e-voting terminals as a major source of concern.
